Question about 1990 Acura Legend
As I come to a stop and remain there for a bit.. sometimes the car turns off.. not all the times .. but it has done that to me like 3 times today.
Could be the crank angle sensor. If that's the problem the ECU under the passenger seat (sedans) or passenger carpet (coupes) will read out the code for it.
if it's the crank angle sensor that's bad, your car will run rough (rpm will fluctuate and it may hesitate) and will stall sometimes.
can be $1000 to fix at the shop, but you can find a DIY online and do it for $70. Took me 2 hours, and I know nothing about cars. And you don't have to remove the timing belt either. good luck!

Engine stalling issue at low speeds
is commonly caused by a dirty automatic idle speed control valve and
throttle valve. Buy a can of throttle valve cleaner from NAPA or
Carquest (made by CRC chemicals) and spray it into the air intake
while the engine is running, use up about 1/2 the can, engine will
try to stall hold the speed up, shut it down and let it soak for 30
minutes, restart and blow out the remaining fluid, shut it down and
disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 Min's to reset the base
